Aquarius - visualize a new life
The next full moon on Thursday August 15 activates the gallbladder meridian. Our tolerance may be challenged. Look for opportunities to expand patience and acceptance.
When the prana is stuck in the gallbladder meridian, one can have difficulties making decisions. This can lead to emotional frustration.
The gallbladder works closely with the liver taking plans and bringing them to reality. This is an excellent time to visualize the ideal life situation, partner, workplace, travel or whatever.
